The adaptor ring is crucial to the LEE Filters system, allowing you to attach a filter holder to your lens. It screws onto the front thread of your camera’s lens and, in turn, the filter holder clips onto the adaptor ring.
We offer a choice of standard and wide-angle adaptor rings in a wide range of sizes to suit your lens.
The adaptor rings in our standard range are compatible with lenses of a moderate wide angle — approximately 24-28mm full-frame equivalent — and longer. They are available in the following thread sizes: 49mm, 52mm, 55mm, 58mm, 62mm, 67mm, 72mm, 77mm, 82mm, 86mm, 93mm, 95mm, and 105mm.
Wide angle adaptor rings
To avoid vignetting, we recommend using our wide angle adaptor rings when shooting with lenses wider than approximately 24mm. The crucial difference between these and the standard rings is that they sit closer to the front element of the lens. Wide angle adaptor rings are available in the following thread sizes: 43mm, 46mm, 49mm, 52mm, 55mm, 58mm, 62mm, 67mm, 72mm, 77mm, and 82mm.
Custom adaptor rings
There are certain lenses on the market that aren’t compatible with our standard and wide angle adaptor rings. To overcome this, we have designed a number of adaptor rings for specific popular lenses. We can also manufacture custom-sized adaptor rings to suit your requirements. Contact us for more information.
Due to its bulbous front element, this perspective-control lens can’t be used with standard adaptor rings. The LEE Filters adaptor ring designed specifically for this lens consists of a front ring, a compressor ring, and a locking ring.
This adaptor ring does not allow full lens movement without vignetting.
Adaptor ring for Canon 17mm TS-E lens
Usually, it would be impossible to use filters with this tilt-shift lens, but our special adaptor ring allows more than half the movement that is normally possible before vignetting. This allows photographers to use our 100mm filters, including the Big Stopper.
Adaptor ring for Olympus 7-14mm f2.8 Pro lens
Because of its bulbous front element, the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 7-14mm f/2.8 Pro isn’t compatible with conventional adaptor rings. To overcome this problem, we introduced an adaptor that consists of a front ring, a compressor ring, and a locking ring, allowing filters to be used.
Due to the extremely wide angle of view of this lens, the filter holder will vignette at the widest angles. To avoid this, use a minimum focal length of 10mm.
Adaptor ring for Fujifilm GF23mm lens
This adaptor ring has been specifically designed for the Fujifilm GF23mm lens.
